Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 4-28-2020

​By Steve Blake

Current water level is 710.59 and water surface temp varies from main lake 64 degrees to backs of creeks 69 degrees.

Crappie have started coming back to the banks in the Sterett Creek Area now that water temps have recovered from the cold front. Fish that moved in before the fast rise are holding in 5 to 7 feet of water while fish that are just now moving in to spawn can be found in 1 to 3 feet of water. JIgs and road runners are working equally as well. Fish in the Sterett Creek area are averaging 10 to 12 inches with some in the 13 to 14 inch size range.

Bass are on the spawn and best baits have been Jig and plastic or brush hogs in green pumpkin or black and blue. Look for fish on 45 degrees angle banks in 2 to 6 feet of water.

White bass have been stacked on the humps in great numbers but they are running small for the most part. You have to catch 10 before you get a decent keeper. Size should improve with the warmer weather.

Catfish on jugs baited with shad heads and blue gill set in 4 to 10 feet of water have produced the week also in the Sterett Creek Area.

Well that is about it for this week. Sterett Creek Marina is open as is the Drunken Minnow and practicing safety precautions. Come on down and get in on the fun just remember to practice social distancing. Hope to see ya on the water!!!!!
